Finding Freedom

Strategies for Getting Unstuck and Living in Your Highest Self

Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati

How do we develop the courage to free ourselves from all of that which keeps us stuck? Past traumas, limiting beliefs, negative habits, self-sabotage, feelings of unworthiness, fear of our own potential— these old patterns can be hard to break. With her special blend of ancient, Vedic wisdom and Western psychology, join Dr. Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati on a powerful weekend of self discovery where you will discover, embrace, and live in your highest truth.

You will develop new patterns of authentic, courageous living and learn powerful practices to free yourself whenever you may get stuck. This course is for those who feel stuck, frustrated or purposeless in life; it is for those who feel burdened by their own negative patterns of thinking and living and want to break-free into their True Divine Self. It is for those who are ready to courageously face their deep egoic patterns and create a life of authenticity and fulfillment.

In this workshop, we’ll explore:

  • Freedom from Judgement and Self-Doubt: Judgment as discernment is a gift, but the
    inner constant critic is a menace. Learn how to use this natural tool for your growth and
    benefit instead of a disastrous mental-pattern that keeps you stuck.
  • Freedom from Grudges: No one can keep you stuck and suffering, other than you.
    Regardless of what anyone has ever done to harm you, it’s time to set yourself free.
  • Freedom from Negative Emotions: Develop control over emotions like anger, jealousy,
    sadness, rage, loneliness, and annoyance.
  • Freedom from Addiction and Craving: Stop turning to harmful substances to feel full, and
    rediscover the inherent wholeness and fullness of who you already are!
  • Living Your Best Life: Unleash the possibilities of your highest Self as you learn daily
    practices to remember who you truly are and co-create the most expansive, abundant,
    fulfilling life.

Program participants will join Sadhviji in exploration of ancient wisdom, modern science, and
practical tools & techniques. They will participate in transformative exercises to transcend the ego, embrace their true Self, and live from a place of authenticity, joy, true freedom, and inner peace. This course is for seekers of self-realization, spiritual growth and liberated living and for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of themselves and the world.
